Researchers believe that the origin of Tibetan Carpet weaving was most likely evolved indigenously and in
isolation, dating as far back as 7th Century A. D, as
evidenced by excavations done around the Silk Road.
This explains the unique weaving technique and
physical structure of Tibetan Carpet weaving, distinct
from that of neighboring China and India, as well as
from other extant weaving traditions worldwide.
Specifically, it is the use of archaic vertical loom and the peculiar archaic knotting technique.
